Davide, Martino, and the Probe
Prof. Poggio and Ph.D. student Davide Cadeddu are shown here with our custom-made 3He scanning probe microscope.
Nanowires as Scanning Force Sensors
A new type of atomic force microscope (AFM) uses nanowires as tiny sensors. Unlike standard AFM, the device with a nanowire sensor enables measurements of both the size and direction of forces.
